We could have done a better job – Samini on Black Stars’ official theme song

Ghanaian reggae-dancehall musician, Samini, has shared his view on the official theme song for Black Stars chosen for the Ghana Black Stars’ campaign at the World Cup in Qatar.

Award-winning artiste, Samini Dagaati

This comes only a few days after the Kentos Music Band with the blessing of the Ministry of Youth and Sports released the official cheer song for the Black Stars.


Dubbed “Osey” the song is to whip up support for the Stars ahead of the games at Qatar, which commences on November 20.

Other artists, including Kwaku Flitz, King Promise, and highlife musician Akwaboah have also released similar songs as Black Stars.

However, there have been widespread opinions that the song isn’t catchy enough for a World Cup banger.

Adding his voice to the lot, Dancehall musician Samini has expressed concern about the song’s quality, describing it as “bad.”

Taking to Twitter in a series of rant posts, Samini stated that the song is not up to standard to be the theme song for the Black Stars’ World Cup football match this year.

Although Samini did not specify the artists’ song, he did say that some of them would have done a better job and that it does not deserve to be an official song for Black Stars in any way.

“The new black starts song tho, do we have to learn it before the world cup? whoever chose it probably wrote it too. Eiiiii track na 3y3 ya saaa no! Hmmm. A few of us could have done a better job at that Chale anaa meeb)dam lol. but vim is still for the boys. Go Ghana”.

Highlife musician Akwaboah also released the visuals for his black Stars them song “Bring Back The Love” ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.
